Security Framework for IoT Devices against Cyber-Attacks

by   Aliya Tabassum, et al.

Internet of Things (IoT) is the interconnection of heterogeneous smart devices through the Internet with diverse application areas. The huge number of smart devices and the complexity of networks has made it impossible to secure the data and communication between devices. Various conventional security controls are insufficient to prevent numerous attacks against these information-rich devices. Along with enhancing existing approaches, a peripheral defence, Intrusion Detection System (IDS), proved efficient in most scenarios. However, conventional IDS approaches are unsuitable to mitigate continuously emerging zero-day attacks. Intelligent mechanisms that can detect unfamiliar intrusions seems a prospective solution. This article explores popular attacks against IoT architecture and its relevant defence mechanisms to identify an appropriate protective measure for different networking practices and attack categories. Besides, a security framework for IoT architecture is provided with a list of security enhancement techniques.
